Just because Canadian tire has "Canadian" in it doesn't make it right. Also, what a lame ass present to a store that has junky decorations and kitchy repair jobs.

Why does everyone assume it was intentional? I live in Canada and I have no clue which stores exist in other countries. If it was intentional, the only possible reason would be to suggest a visit. It's not like he was unaware of what country his child lived in because he somehow got it to them.

Not much of a thought, then. If I were to get a gift card for someone out of the country, I'd damn well make sure the store first exists and that they honor the card as well.

197, I took that as being exactly the point of the FML. People are quick to take it at face value and assume OP only cares about not being able to use the money, but the way I understood it, the real fml is implying that the father doesn't care much about her.

191 - that was just the most likely reason why he would have bought a gift card for a Canadian store. Why else would he? Who would bother buying a $200 gift card for a Canadian store when they know it's useless when a gift card for a north American store is just as easy to get? But what I think happened is he made an honest mistake and just bought a card without thinking what countries that store exist in. I think the OP is just an ungrateful asshole who's bitching on the Internet because their gift is slightly wrong.

258 - Like I said, the way I understood it was that OP's life is fucked because her dad doesn't care enough to check whether that store exists outside of Canada, especially since OP said her place is "not even close". It's likely she doesn't live in America, since that's "close" , so it is pretty damn stupid to overlook that. Again, it just makes more sense that OP isn't just some idiot who only wanted to complain, which would be pointless. We could come up with assumed backstories that make all OPs look like little bitches to every fml if we wanted to.

240, I think people are just looking for an excuse to flame the OP for being a brat, or whatever they want to imagine her as. It wouldn't make sense that way, but people will be people I suppose.

83- after I posted that previous comment I realized I made a mistake on my own comment that's further down so my bad for the slightly bitchy sounding post I'll just go sit in the corner of shame now.

"It's the thought that matters"? Really? How much thought is put into walking into a store, picking up a clearly random giftcard, and walking out?

255- that's what I was thinking. You guys need to calm down, it was most likely just an accident. I wouldn't be able to tell you if any of the stores where I live are available in canada. Op can just sell the card and get cash for it.

It is the thought that counts but how much thought was put into a gift card for a store not even in your country? I always think about who I'm shopping for to get them something they'll like. It's the thought that counts when you actually think about what to get them.
